I am a sucker for an e-mailed press release, especially when it’s for a good cause/awesome band. Bloody Knees sent me a link to this before, and having seen them play with Trash Kit and be excellent, the least I can do is post it on this dusty corner of the web:
Following in the radical footsteps of Positive Force DC, a new London collective is organising events to celebrate their communities, fund charities and inspire social change. “So much happens in London. So many great shows with so many great bands. We’ve been left wanting more” they say. “We aim to create a strong network of musicians, bands, promoters, venues, labels, journalists and free thinkers to help us grow”.
The group will put their words into action with their first show at The Victoria on Saturday 26th September. Wet dog, Bloody Knees and Chapter Sweetheart will play in aid of housing charity Shelter. It doesn’t stop there. The collective will
continue to promote shows and parties with their Positive-inspired aim in mind. “We’re not a political party or revolutionary group. We do not want to be the only ones who put on these shows and we want it to happen all over the country”.
We need Positive Action.
If you’ve never listened to Bloody Knees before, then listen up – they’re low fidelity, high energy and overall just very very good. Last.fm has a free download for you of their song Poster Boy, but I’m putting it on mediafire as it always feels safer in my eyes:
